Holy Rosary students talk patriotism

The Holy Rosary 6th and 7th grade students participated in the Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest, organized by Leatrice Wirtz and our local VFW.


Students wrote a 300-400 word essay on the topic “What Patriotism Means to Me.” After writing their essays, they read them to a panel of judges, who then chose the first, second and third place winners in 6th and 7th grade.

Winners will be honored at a special banquet later this year.
